A Storybrooke Carol by taintedidealist

Rating: M

Wordcount: 15k

Warnings: Graphic Violence

Summary: Inspired by Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”: As Greg Mendell’s interrogation of Regina reaches its heights she believes she hallucinates her deceased father. He warns of three visitors, shades, showing Regina of The Life That Was, The Life That Is, and The Life That Will Be. Will Regina learn from the shades before it is too late to reverse what she has started or will she lose her family as well as herself? (Set during 2x21 “Second Star to the Right” veers off from canon at this point and then swings back around.)

Oh the art is so so lovely.

The backlog of rape kits has put justice on hold for a lot of people. Back in 2009, more than 11,000 untested kits were found in a Detroit Police Department storage facility. Some were more than 25 years old.

Mariska Hargitay speaks on some of the issues surrounding the rape kit backlog in Detroit, Michigan. #endthebacklog (x)

It costs between $1,000 – $1,500 to test every single rape kit. There are over 10,000 kits left in Detroit’s rape kit backlog. Your donation can go directly to testing them. Donate to the Detroit Crime Commission’s backlog initiative by clicking here.

I am pretty explicitly anti-police in every respect. But I support Wayne County prosecutor Kym Worthy and her push to catalogue the egregious backlog of unprocessed rape kits in Detroit. 

Her work has already identified countless serial rapists in southeast Michigan, and will continue to identify these rapist pieces of shit as she moves forward.

Who cares if this process leads to conviction or not. Just give us the list. We can take care of the rest.

"After Detroit tested the first 10% of its backlogged kits, authorities were able to link cases to 46 serial rapists." (x)

Just think about it: 46 serial rapists. And the evidence against them was out there, all the time, in those backlogged kits. And that’s just 10% of them
